I like Jelly Beans

It has been a long time since I posted last, mainly because of the move and getting a new job. Things are finally getting in place and I have a split sec. to post a little something. I have added some more pictures to the gallery and well other than that the site is about the same as it has been for the last couple of months.

Living in the LA area is worlds better than Redlands ever was. Some people dont like the cities, I am not one of those people. The traffic can be a little daunting at times but all in all its just a way of life out here so it seems. It takes me about 30 mins to drive the 16 miles to work, and 45 mins if I get on the road late. Work is really keeping me busy, but I dont really mind it as its something that I really enjoy doing so it tends to keep my attention and I am not counting the hours or even minutes before I am supposed to leave like I was at my old job. Well besides the working over the last couple of weeks I have made it out a few times.

I even made it down to Santa Monica to have a dirty martini with Allison, and to top it off paid 1.80 per 15 mins of parking too… Parking is lame thats all I really can say about that. Last weekend I went to the Lava Lounge in Hollywood, it was alright. The place reminded me of a Tiki bar of sorts, except they had some hardcore country music playing, I actually kind of liked it as it was heavier than the normal twangy crap. I also ended up drinking some good old Mickey’s Grenades, I bought out the last two six packs the store had and the last two forties as well. Anyways this weekend I might head up to Vegas to hang out with Burge and then to Bakersfield to BBQ with Sean.

Graduation Day

So since I am really trying to take a bite out of new things, I met up with a very great genuine friend yesterday for a drink and dinner. We decided to head to a sushi place in Santa Monica called Noma. I decided since I wanted to do it up right I would just dive head first into whatever she decided to order. We had jalapeno Sashimi (Salmon and Tuna Sashimi), and spicy yellowtail roll(This was really good) and last but not least shrimp tempura roll. For only my 2nd time eating this kind of stuff I thought I did pretty well and REALLY liked it. I think I will be treating myself to more of it in the near future. Nothing like good times and experiences with friends.
